Compile logback.groovy rather than interpret at runtime

                 Key: LBCORE-172
                 URL: http://jira.qos.ch/browse/LBCORE-172
             Project: logback-core
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Other
    Affects Versions: 0.9.25
         Environment: Windows, Java 6
            Reporter: Anthony Whitford
            Assignee: Logback dev list
            Priority: Minor

Configuring LogBack using an internal DSL with Groovy is a clever idea.

Rather than including logback.groovy in the classpath and requiring a 5.5 MB groovy-all dependency to load and interpret it, why not offer a way that logback.groovy could be compiled at compile time.  Then, instead of interpreting logback.groovy using a GroovyShell, why not simply run a method from an already compiled class.

This strategy has the advantage of discovering many configuration problems (like typos) at compile-time rather than run-time.
